The U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief Tanzania (PEPFAR) through the Ambassador’s Fund for HIV/AIDS Relief (AFHR) is pleased to announce an open competition for organizations to submit applications to carry out Community-Led Monitoring (CLM) activities.
Community-led monitoring is a process initiated and implemented by local community-based organizations and other civil society groups that gathers quantitative and/or qualitative data about HIV services. The focus is on getting input from recipients of HIV services in a routine and systematic manner that will translate into action and change. CLM is central to PEPFAR’s client centered approach because it puts the needs and voices of communities at the center of the HIV response.
PEPFAR Tanzania supports Community-Led Monitoring activities/programs to ensure that program beneficiary feedback is incorporated into quality improvement activities.
- Number of awards anticipated: 12 awards
- Award amounts: Grants can be between $5,000 and $24,999 USD (Budget should be submitted in Tanzanian shillings and is calculated on the daily exchange rate if awarded)
